Today is June 10th and June 10th was my mothers birthday…she passed away from cancer almost 20 years go. So to honor her, I thought it would be fun to make one of my favorite recipes Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies, this cookie recipe was a favorite of mine from childhood. This is the original recipe that I used to make with the only change being I added pecans instead of walnuts and I added some vanilla extract.
Kelsi immediately offered to help.. and slowly Jacob jumped in as well…as you can see from the video tutorial below. I have to say it was such a pleasure to be cooking side by side with both my children. This recipe for banana chocolate chip with pecan is not the traditional kind of chocolate chip cookie, it’s very “airy” and more like a cake cookie and I will share that once baked, I still loved the flavor of this cookie.
It’s a very simple recipe actually, you basically take your shortening (and I have tried to substitute this with butter but it’s just not the same) and sugar and mix it all up
add your banana that is very ripped or over ripped as you can see from my photo
add your flour (sorry not an exciting photo so but I did take a good one of the chocolate chips and pecans
scoop it out on a parchment lined baking sheet
bake for 12-15 minutes…and YUM!!!!
here are a few shots we took…which one do you like better?
